|Subject Overview:||This subject will provide a multi-disciplinary approach to understanding policy processes and their drivers. The subject will consist of three parts. The first part will draw on perspectives from political science, economics, law, psychology, sociology and management theory to provide a theoretical framework for understanding policymaking. This framework will then be applied to understanding health policy particularly in the Australian context. The second part will examine processes for policy change with a particular focus on the role of different understandings of equity. The third part will take a multidisciplinary approach to understanding policy analysis techniques and their role in policy processes. |
